IMF Executive Directors and Voting Power

Last Updated: November 25, 2020


The Executive Board (the Board) is responsible for conducting the day-to-day business of the IMF. It is composed of 24 Directors, who are elected by member countries or by groups of countries, and the Managing Director, who serves as its Chairman. The Board usually meets several times each week. It carries out its work largely on the basis of papers prepared by IMF management and staff.

The table below shows quota and voting shares for IMF members. Following the entry into force of the Board Reform Amendment on January 26, 2016, members who have consented to their quota increases can pay their quota increases under the 14th General Review of Quotas. Quota and voting shares will change as members pay their quota increases. During this process, this table will be updated regularly (see here for more details on the Quota and Governance reforms agreed in 2010.)
